Virology and Epidemiology in the Time of COVID-19

Virology and Epidemiology in the Time of COVID-19

This course covers the science and social impacts of viral infectious diseases. We will begin by covering the basics: what a virus is, the structural and functional diversity of viruses, and how viruses use our bodies and the bodies of other organisms to replicate. Then we will dive into the human response: how our immune systems work to protect us from pathogenic viruses and how we use science and social systems to fend off viruses through vaccines and public health measures.

Basics of Electrical Protection System

Basics of Electrical Protection System

Power system protection and switchgear plays a crucial role in establishing reliable electrical power systems. Improperly designed protection systems can lead to major power failures. Due to the increasing dependency of electricity, such power failures can have a serious impact on society and the economy. Application knowledge of power system-protection is key when it comes to optimizing the reliability level of electrical infrastructure.

Operational Research for Humanitarians

Operational Research for Humanitarians

Evidence is central to good decision-making both in the humanitarian sector and beyond. Every day, a vast amount of evidence is generated that is relevant to humanitarian actors, much of it through research by academics and practitioners. This evidence can be incredibly valuable. It can help us better understand a situation and make humanitarian action more effective and accountable. The difficulty comes with understanding what evidence is relevant to our circumstances, where to find it, and how to assess its quality.

Sleep: Neurobiology, Medicine, and Society

Sleep: Neurobiology, Medicine, and Society

The objective of this course is to give students the most up-to-date information on the biological, personal, and societal relevance of sleep. Personal relevance is emphasized by the fact that the single best predictor of daytime performance is the quality of the previous night's sleep. The brain actively generates sleep, and the first section of the course is an overview of the neurobiological basis of sleep control. The course provides cellular-level understanding of how sleep deprivation, jet lag, and substances such as alcohol, ,caffeine, and nicotine alter sleep and wakefulness.
